The Beadle, leafing through his copy of the new Hamodia (not available online), the Gerrer hasidim-controlled Jewish weekly, spotted this blatant lie by omission in Hamodia's coverage of the Knesset slap:
Rabbi Cohen told De Hartuch: “You’re destroying the Torah world’. De Hartuch responded by saying, “you are a beast, shut your mouth.”
As the argument heated up, De Hartuch said to him, “If you don’t shut up, I’ll slap you.” Rabbi Cohen replied, “I’m waiting.”
Rabbi Cohen later said that he only thought that De Hartuch was threatening him with a slap, and he didn’t think that De Hartuch intentions were real.
At this point De Hartuch viciously smashed his fist into Rabbi Cohen’s face throwing him a meter and a half.
That's right. No mention of the "You are worse than the Germans" remark that caused the attorney to slap the rabbi MK, even though the rabbi had already admitted saying it and many eyewitnesses heard it. (Some also heard him refer to the attorney as a Nazi.)
Worse yet, the rabbi admits here that he did not think the attorney would really slap him so, like all true bullies, he goaded the attorney, making himself look tough while really thinking himself safe and free from any danger.
Hamodia then turns the slap into a punch, even though no eyewitness saw anything other than a slap, and the rabbi MK is previously on record describing the assault as a slap.
Hamodia is controlled by the Gerrer Rebbe, who also controls the part of UTJ the rabbi MK – himself a Gerrer hasid – represents.
It seems truth and honesty are not pillars of Gerrer theology
